Mini Gothic Doll amigurumi pattern

Hello hello!!! This week’s creation is a free mini Gothic doll amigurumi pattern! If you want to go straight to the point, just move downwards and check it out. However, if you want to stick around, there might be some useful information along the way!

A couple of weeks ago I made “Nina, the night doll” for my niece, out of an urgent request of her, and I share the free pattern here.

With Halloween coming up, I decided to dress up Nina, the night doll, for Halloween, and so, Nina dressed for Halloween was born!

pin it for later!

I had to stop my many work in progress to create this collection, I still haven’t finished my five crochet gifts for my friend’s newborn (which you can check the free crochet patterns also!), but I am very near to the end! So, I can dedicate myself to other smaller projects. But mini Frankenstein amigurumi free pattern is ready and there are two creations more to come. In total will be 4 mini Halloween amigurumi free patterns!

Some of you already know I publish every week a free, beginner-friendly amigurumi pattern, and if you want to receive straight in your e-mail, just subscribe in the box down below. I send 1 or 2 e-mails per month, nothing more than that!

And if you are a complete beginner, or still having to learn some stitches, I leave here some useful links with the stitches used to make this doll. On each post, there are step by step pictures and written the description of the movements, and at the end, there is a video showing all up together.

And some useful amigurumi tips to always keep in mind!

TIPS:

  1. Most important to remember is to keep your stitch with a tight tension, this way, you won’t have any see-through gaps.
  2. To help me keep my stitches tight, I prefer using yarn for a thicker needle than the one I would be using for the Amigurumi.
  3. Always count your stitches after every row, so you will make sure to have the total amount of stitches.
  4. Use a piece of yarn to mark the last stitch, so you won’t miss where the beginning and end of your row is!
